Date: Every Thursday evening
Time: Drop-in (play continues from 6:30-9:30 pm)
Location: Montclair Courts, Oakland (Mountain at Colton)
Cost: $2 donation requested
Hot Courts happen every Thursday evening, year-round. Simply stop by anytime between 6:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (no partner needed) for some casual and fun doubles tennis.
The exact format varies, but generally consists of four no-ad games followed by a tiebreaker, after which those who had a bye on the previous round are brought in, partners and opponents are switched up, and play begins again.
The cost is only $2.00 per evening, which goes to help defray the costs of court maintenance and repair (nets, windscreens, etc.).

Sign up now for this year's holiday party which will be held at Monaghan's on the Hill, just off Highway 13 near the Joaquin Miller exit.

We will have our own room with a full buffet dinner and red / white wine. There is room for dancing and use of an outdoor heated patio (weather permitting).
The menu includes nibbles to start, followed by a garden salad, then your choice of Red-Wine-Braised Beef Short Ribs or Chipotle Salmon, mashed potatoes and vegetables, and a special dessert home-crafted by our own Robin Lee.
If you would prefer a vegetarian option or have dietary restrictions, please contact Herb Weingard at least a week before the party, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Wine is included (or, if you’d rather, bring your own – the reduced corkage fee is $10/bottle).
A full no-host bar is also available.
Evening program: Social hour, dinner, president's address and brief meeting (recap of 2015 and voting in the 2016 board), dessert, socializing and dancing, and highlighted by a continuous slide show.
Oh, plus games!
Parking is available in front of the restaurant, in what used to be a gas station across the side street, or on the neighboring streets (could be tight; carpool if you can). As always, be safe and leave no valuables in your car.
We hope to see you for this annual end-of-year celebration!
Any questions, please contact Herb Weingard
